I’m a Fierce Hearted Woman (and So Are You)

I did a rash thing back a couple of months ago, and that thing was applying to not just one but TWO book launch teams for books coming out in October. Signing up to that first one already felt a little wild and crazy for me, but taking on a second one? Whoa Nelly. Y'all… Continue reading I’m a Fierce Hearted Woman (and So Are You)

A Biblical Case for Simple Living

The Apostle Paul extolled the virtues of living a quiet life, and Jesus Christ himself taught that we shouldn’t chase after material goods, but focus instead on serving others and nurturing our faith. Indeed, during his earthly ministry, Jesus seemed to embrace a lifestyle of minimalism and simplicity, trusting God for his every earthly need.… Continue reading A Biblical Case for Simple Living

In Which I Figure a Few Things Out

I'm on a never-ending quest to make my life easier, as are we all, I'm sure. Which is why when I have some "A-ha!" moments I feel like I should share them, just in case there's someone reading this who struggles in the same area(s) I do and who might benefit from my discoveries.

Link Roundup: Fall Minimalism Edition

Happy fall, y'all! This week has been a week. Not a terrible week, but not a great one, either. It started out great with a super-productive Monday, but on Monday night our refrigerator started making unhealthy noises and, sure enough, by Tuesday morning everything had begun to melt and thaw. So that was tons of… Continue reading Link Roundup: Fall Minimalism Edition

For a long time, I've wanted to start a shop selling my own graphics in the… Continue reading Daydream Studios Shop is Now Open!


How a Rock Helped My Depression

I have a history of depression. There, I said it. Admitting this hasn't always been easy for me. In fact, for a long time I was in flat-out denial. I wasn't depressed, I was just tired, or stressed, or just dealing with a lot. Or it was hormones, or Seasonal Affective Disorder. Or all of… Continue reading How a Rock Helped My Depression

What I Learned This Summer

It's time for another post about what I learned this season! Which is good because I'm having an unexpectedly hectic week and otherwise I would've skipped posting this week. Which brings me to my first item: I don't have to operate on anyone else's schedule. This is something I finally figured out after allowing myself… Continue reading What I Learned This Summer

The Essentials of Essentialism

Recently, I joined the launch teams for two upcoming books--one by Jess Connely and one by Holley Gerth. I will talk about each of those books in future posts--two different posts, because it wouldn't be fair to make them share--but today I want to talk about the fact that guys, I signed up to two… Continue reading The Essentials of Essentialism
